Summaries for DAAM1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DAAM1 Gene

  • Cell motility, adhesion, cytokinesis, and other functions of the cell cortex are mediated by reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and several formin homology (FH) proteins have been associated with these processes. The protein encoded by this gene contains two FH domains and belongs to a novel FH protein subfamily implicated in cell polarity. A key regulator of cytoskeletal architecture, the small GTPase Rho, is activated during development by Wnt/Fz signaling to control cell polarity and movement. The protein encoded by this gene is thought to function as a scaffolding protein for the Wnt-induced assembly of a disheveled (Dvl)-Rho complex. This protein also promotes the nucleation and elongation of new actin filaments and regulates cell growth through the stabilization of microtubules. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]

GeneCards Summary for DAAM1 Gene

DAAM1 (Dishevelled Associated Activator Of Morphogenesis 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Wnt signaling pathway (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and Rho GTPase binding. An important paralog of this gene is FMN2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DAAM1 Gene

  • Binds to disheveled (Dvl) and Rho, and mediates Wnt-induced Dvl-Rho complex formation. May play a role as a scaffolding protein to recruit Rho-GDP and Rho-GEF, thereby enhancing Rho-GTP formation. Can direct nucleation and elongation of new actin filaments.

  • Q9Y4D1
  • The C-terminal DAD domain may participate in intramolecular interactions with the N-terminus
  • The DAD domain regulates activation via by an autoinhibitory interaction with the GBD/FH3 domain. This autoinhibition is released upon competitive binding of an activated GTPase. The release of DAD allows the FH2 domain to then nucleate and elongate nonbranched actin filaments (By similarity).
  • Contains 1 DAD (diaphanous autoregulatory) domain.
  • Contains 1 FH1 (formin homology 1) domain.
  • Contains 1 FH2 (formin homology 2) domain.
  • Contains 1 GBD/FH3 (Rho GTPase-binding/formin homology 3) domain.
  • Belongs to the formin homology family.
